City unveils school supervision reforms

Shanghai yesterday unveiled a reform scheme to enhance its supervision of schools.

Mao Aiqun, director of the Shanghai Education Supervision Affairs Center, said that a total of 791 city supervisors are in charge of overseeing, evaluating, inspecting and monitoring operation and education quality in 3,276 kindergartens and schools.

“Their photos, names and phone numbers are posted on a blue plate near the gate of the school they are in charge of, so parents can report problems to them directly. They also visit schools once or twice a month to find problems and provide guidance on correction.”

According to the plan, the city will build a more professional and efficient supervision team and a more powerful punishment scheme by 2022.

“Five schools will share a full-time or part-time supervisor and some schools with large numbers of students will have their own exclusive supervisor. At least 30 percent of the supervisors will work full time,” said Zhang Hui, director of the Shanghai Education Commission’s supervision office.

Inspection results will now be open to the public to encourage schools to perform better. Schools will be asked to correct problems according to the requirements of rectification notices within a given time. Supervision organizations will issue notifications to those failing to do so and their deeds will be reported to related administrations.

The city will also explore ways to establish interrogation systems at different levels with participation of not only education supervision organizations, but also other related government departments.
